Why do volunteer work?

  •  
    Make sure your motivation is clear to yourself!

You have the wish to do volunteer work, but why? Do you want to develop yourself? Do you want to get away from it all? Do you want to learn from other cultures or help the less fortunate? Doing volunteer with the wrong motivation can sometimes lead to A negative volunteer experience.

  •  
    Are your expectations of volunteering probably unrealistic?
  •  
    Are you not clear on which points you need to prepare well (both practically and mentally)?
  •  
     
    Is volunteering possibly not at all what will help you to make your wish come true.

Of course we do not want to motivate you to do volunteer work. It is A great experience and it will bring you A lot anways, but it is an important point to consider so that you can get more out of your journey.
